Demetrius Julius

Guest Speaker September 2012

Demetrios A. Julius, M.D. developed an interest in the functioning and interplay of the mind and the body while he was an undergraduate at Harvard College. During his years as a medical student and resident at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, he had the good fortune to become involved with the Department of Psychiatry. At that time, Cincinnati was a major psychoanalytic training center but had also ventured into new areas of psychiatry. One such innovation was the establishment of one of the country’s first research laboratories to study the mysterious and relatively little understood phenomenon of sleep.

In 1979, Dr. Julius settled in Richmond, Virginia as the Chief of Psychiatry of the McGuire V.A. Medical Center. He attained the academic rank of Professor of Psychiatry at the Medical College of Virginia as well as Visiting Professor at the University of Virginia. During this time, he founded the first Sleep Disorders Lab at a public hospital in Richmond in 1984. This was followed by the first private sleep center, the Sleep Disorders Center of Richmond in 1986. He has worked continuously in the field of sleep disorders since that time. Since 2009, he has also served as Medical Director of the CJW Sleep Disorders Center.
